We have come to embrace an atmosphere of political slogans, in an attempt to bridge a great divide of our own making. Healing a nation of its fiscal woes, requires more than the hollow empty building blocks of red-meat rhetoric, class division or the tactics of crisis management, in addition to bureaucratic bullying. There is no strength in the collective building of a house of cards mortgaged by excessive debt, firmly placed on the foundations of excessive spending and the economic limitations of farther increased taxation. The indifference of attitude in only paying the interest on that debt, without ever having a financial plan or a resolve, in making payments towards payment in full ending this debt, is not success! The use of re-imagined optics of rose-colored glasses, as the only political presentations to fresh new visions of this nation’s future, is nothing short of total blinding fantasy. An over use of political theater, an attitude of never let a crisis go to waste, has built a plethora of maligning, defaming, tarnishing, or even slandering the opposition to the charlatans mythology of political repair. The divisionist adventure over that roadway to success, that is just beyond that bridge to nowhere.
In that failed attempt in bridging our divide through subservience compliance, these over inflated self-impressionists of political power, has also led us to sail the new winds of change, voiced through unrealistic demands of compromise. They demand, in order to get along you must go along! Efforts in erasing political values and principles which have given us our two-party systems as our form of government, accomplishes nothing but an unopposed abusive government. An effort to erect a redistributionist political rule, while also allowing their opposition to suffer the brainwashed public’s sting of frustration through yet another failed negotiation. This is what has been accepted as new and innovative leadership, visions of greatness through the managed decay of hope and change.
Leadership of hysterics, whose policies of solving one problem by guaranteeing the next crisis, isn’t leadership! But politics that is paving the way for an ever-growing government with a diminished values system of the smallest minority, the individual! This is that infamous slippery slope towards command and control loss of liberty.
The use of executive orders has become totally abusive of that power granted to the president’s office by the people of the United States. A grotesque methodology in by-passing congress, with nonchalance, hinting of mischief, by the highest office of the land. Our nation seems to be losing its grasp and understanding of the genius, of the separation and co-equal powers within our three branches of government.
We have today a totally greedy government that places no obstacles in its pathway to self-control. But have embraced corruption, in order to gain reelection. With representations by our representatives, whose interests now days are in seeking out or locating, as well as creatively amplifying, distractions, in the hopes of manipulating the public mind-set? It is no surprise as a nation that we have loss the abilities of the use of debate, creative thinking, or the application of critical thinking in finding solutions to our present problems without recreating future problems of crises. It’s no surprise that we all have forgotten those famous words….” Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!” JFK. Replacing these words with distortions of what are the federal government’s responsibilities, in relations to the state government responsibilities, even down to individual responsibilities. Government presents itself as the answer for all things, in exchange for these governmental answers; they erode liberty slowly like an acid drip.
We have clothed our self’s within a modern atmosphere of greed, for some individuals have exchanged uncertain outcomes in the pursuit of unlimited success, for instantaneous security while avoiding personal responsibility. Are we then exchanging our present day perceived security within an environment of greatly diminished future liberty; notwithstanding an increase of corruption in that day? Can the constitution and the freedoms that our founding fathers hoped to provide for all times as self-evident truths, withstand the growth, exponentially so, of the government without also greatly impacting what abilities we all have in our own pursuits of happiness, while enjoying our God-given rights? Can the state of corruption in this government also co-exist with the oath of office, to preserve and protect from all foreign and domestic enemy’s, those God-given rights; or will it seek to remove and replace those God-given rights with a Government who sees itself as a co-equal with God, seeking to dispense redefined rights?
Perhaps it is time to ponder Gorge Washington’s words… “Government is evil, but a necessary evil.”
No real surprise then why our wise founding fathers sought to create a government, of three branches of co-equal powers, in the hopes to control to the best of their ability’s, the human nature of evil within us all. It is when we as a nation act with indifference to this knowledge, refusing to fight its effects within ourselves personally and only embrace this power for our own good. That history will have repeated itself. The only true light of liberty will have then been extinguished.
I hope the words of Ronald Reagan will never come true…..” Any nation in history that also has had liberty, and freedom only to have lost it, has never at any time regained it again.”
We are looking towards our leadership to lead by example; to present a persuasive argument of conservative limited government, making slow but calculated measured moves, for what is truly in the nations best interest. As being far better than doing the un-necessary three times fast, hurdling from one crisis to the next crisis, sowing the seeds of destruction through the policies of uncontrolled tax and spend, as the best leadership possible within a managed decay?
